This jewelry is just a bunch of junk!May 6th, 2009 in member junk
I've decided to jump on board the jewelry making bandwagon -- partly because Mother's Day is nearing, and partly because I saw such a cool fork pendant necklace in the Salvage Studio book. This design is very similar to theirs, except they cut off their handles. Though I do love using my newest toy (I mean tool) -- my cutoff wheel -- I thought that the handle was the best part of vintage silverware. And if I bent it forward or backward, you wouldn't be able to see it either. So I flattened the fork, turned it backwards, and then bent the handle forward. Then I just curled up each tine using a needle nose pliers.
The most difficult part was trying to attach the charms using the rings I chose, hard to pinch them closed with all the stuff in the way. Just when I thought I had it, a charm would fall off. ARGGh.
